Tiger Woods hit balls from Europe into Asia on Tuesday when half of the six-lane Bosphorus Bridge was closed for the world’s top-ranked golfer.
In a publicity stunt for this week’s Turkish Open, Woods stood on a makeshift tee and launched drives along the world’s fourth longest suspension bridge, which spans 5,118 feet and is 210 feet above the Bosphorus River.

Jim Furyk put his 59 behind him with a round that was 10 shots higher Saturday in the BMW Championship. Now all he wants is a trophy.
Furyk recovered from a sluggish start with three birdies in a five-hole stretch around the turn. A three-putt bogey from 30 feet on the par-5 18th forced him to settle for a 2-under 69 and a one-shot lead over Steve Stricker.
It was a far different finish from Friday, when Furyk hit a wedge to three feet for birdie on his final hole (No. 9) for a 12-under 59, becoming only the sixth player in PGA Tour history to hit golf’s magic number.

They say par is a good score in a major.
If that’s true next week at the PGA Championship, then Tiger Woods has already done his share of preparation.
Woods played safe and smart with a big lead, parring 16 holes in an even-par 70 Sunday to coast to a seven-shot victory at the Bridgestone Invitational for his eighth win at the event — matching the PGA Tour record he already shared for victories in a single tournament.
